Abstract

Abstract summaryThe advantage of ultrasound contrast agents (UCAs) as drug delivery systems is the ability to non-invasively control the local and triggered release of a drug or gene. In this study we designed and characterized a novel UCA-based drug delivery system, based on polymer-shelled microcapsules filled with a mixture of gas and oil, for the local delivery of lipophilic drugs.
